Strike Vector EX is coming to PS4 on 30th August

Ragequit Corporation’s fast-paced aerial shooter gets a full tune-up and rebuild for PS4

After putting the finishing touches on the PlayStation 4 version of Strike Vector EX two weeks ago, our three-man Ragequit team is ecstatic to share our game with you. Come Tuesday, August 30, you will have the chance to strap yourself into a Vector!

The road here has not been easy. When we originally created Ragequit Corporation, we had all worked at larger companies, like Quantic Dream (Heavy Rain), Ubisoft, Amerzone, and others. Pierre-Etienne Travers (artist), Cedric Lecacheur (programmer) and myself had only ever worked on games we were told to work on. This was the first one where we could so anything we wanted. Anything!

Strike Vector EX

Strike Vector EX is inspired by many games. We used to play a ton of Quake and Counter Strike at lunch. Our original goal was to make an air combat game. When we started, we were looking at the combat from Crimson Sky. When we realized it wasn’t going fast enough, we increased the speed. We started shifting toward Quake. Once we realized that the sensations were the same, FPS style combat was further integrated. It took some time, testing and all, and we improvised a lot!

Strike Vector EX is not just as an aerial combat game, but a fast-paced, mech-style FPS dogfight. You can blaze into combat at full speed, instantly stopping in stationary mode, spin around in 3D like in Descent, and blast your enemies. We provide you with a third- and a first-person perspective and once you get the hang of it of the first-person view, you’ll never turn back. That’s when Strike Vector gets really fun.

This console version is built from the ground up. We don’t think of it as a sequel, it’s really a brand new version of the game. Strike Vector EX runs on the Unreal Engine 4 at 1080P on PlayStation 4 at 60 FPS. It features a full single-player mode with cutscenes, storyline, including 15 missions, plus mini-games and side-missions such as survival, attack, destroy, and duel, all with relentless AI. We have added a Skirmish mode — an off-line multiplayer mode packed with nasty AI bots. And we have given gamers the option to fully customize the look of their Vector and their weapons. So if you like to snipe from afar, plow people with a Gatling gun, or prefer the up-close blast of a shotgun, you’re in luck. There are up to 10,000 different weapons, special items, and armor combinations!

And, of course, we have the ultimate fun mode of them all, multiplayer for up to 12 players on 15 maps. This is the heart of our game.

We cannot wait for you to jump in and play. Enjoy our cinematic trailer and see you on 30th of August!

I thought my avatar was weird but what the heck is up with yours?

Wait, don’t answer that.

Also would love the retail version. Limited edition with a soundtrack would be the dogs ********.

+1 for post 3 and 4

I’m getting some Warhawk vibes from this. I’m in day 1.
